How to install xenutils on Linux (XCP-NG)

Using CoreOS? See this post instead!

First, insert the guest-tools.iso supplied with XCP-NG into the DVD drive of the virtual machine.

Then run these commands. Note that this will reboot the machine after it finished

sudo mount -o ro /dev/sr0 /mnt/
cd /mnt/Linux
sudo ./ -n
sudo reboot

After the VM reboots, XCP-NG should detect the management agent.

Please eject the guest tools medium from the machine after the reboot! Sometimes unneccessarily mounted media cause issues.
